Both Benches Clear At Last Night's Braves Game

After hitting a leadoff home run in three straight games someone finally figured out a way to stop Ronald Acuña Jr.

By hitting him first.

And that would be Marlins hurler José Ureña, who nailed Acuña Jr. with the first pitch of his at-bat, pegging the 20-year-old superstar in the elbow. Unsurprisingly, the rest of the Atlanta Braves didn’t take too kindly to the fastball as benches cleared, and plenty of words were exchanged.

Moments later, as Acuña headed to first base, the rookie outfielder tossed his shin guard toward the pitcher’s mound. Braves manager Brian Snitker began shouting again, and the benches emptied once more.

Simply put, this was show of complete cowardice from the entire Marlins team as Ureña was deservedly ejected.

The Braves went on to win the game 5-2.  Acuña is listed as day to day.
